Way of the Cross, Jerusalem.
Station Ten – Via Dolorosa - Jesus is stripped of his garments

Prior to his crucifixion, Jesus was stripped of his garments.

The site of this event is identified within the Church of the Holy Sepulchre’s courtyard, at the east of the Church’s entrance, right at the bottom of Chapel of the Franks. 

On the crusader façade of the church of the Holy Sepulchre stretches a stairway that reaches an exterior elevated chapel, traditionally marking the tenth station of the cross. 

In this place, which was the bottom of the quarry, a roaring crowd of people stood and wait to watch the convicts’ last breath. Jesus was stripped from his clothes and put on display. 

The humility of Jesus was beyond compare and yet even the sight of the Golgotha, the clear end of his journey, couldn't break his spirit.
